Anna backwards is still Anna
I was born and raised in Houston, Texas but escaped the humidity. I am currently living in Austin, Texas enjoying outdoor bars and tacos. I work closely with other designers, developers and product owners to create enjoyable user experiences for digital products. I am passionate about design and enjoy challenging myself by exploring new ideas and technology. I am a firm believer in clean communication and simplicity. My education background is in Industrial Design and utilizing those foundations to improve user experiences in the tech industry. I strive to demonstrate my knowledge of feeling, thinking and sensing.
When I am not staring at pixels on the screen, I am exploring Austin's views with my dog, poking around nurseries picking out my next plant victim or sprucing up my apt with some sort of DIY. Coffee is my fuel of choice.
